I have an unusual decision to make.
It has come to my attention that should I desire it, there is a cemetery plot next to my father’s that is available for my use. Oddly enough, this was not posed to me as some kind of veiled threat. For once.
If I decide not to take it, it will be donated to a family who cannot afford to purchase a site themselves. Apparently the owner of this particular plot had at first tried to return it to the seller, but it seems cemetery plots are 100% nonrefundable. Who knew?
Despite my typically macabre thoughts, it just seems impossible to determine what to think or do with this information. When I die, do I want to decompose next to my father’s decomposed body? What if I don’t live in New York when I die and it costs my survivors $3,000,000 to transport my lifeless remains back to the site for burial? Do I even want to be buried at all? Maybe I’ll just donate my body to science and/or cannibals in some faraway land.
Maybe I should not look a gift horse in the mouth. What would YOU do?
